“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2012

I'm amazed that a previous reviewer had any problems at this hotel, particularly with the staff. I have never stayed anywhere where the standard of service and attention has been of such a high standard. Nothing was too much trouble, every single person was so friendly, keen to help and genuinely concerned about making our holiday enjoyable. The hotel itself is in a stunning location and well laid out; beautiful lawns separate the spotlessly clean pool (right outside our room) from the private beach where boat taxis to and from Lindos and Rhodes call throughout the day.
General facilities (including an extremely well-stocked mini market) are of a high standard as is the restaurant where the range, quality and quantity of food is amazing. As a very fussy eater I can truly say that I could not have been better catered for. The other bonus was the service.........fantastic waiters and hard-working staff.
We stayed in a standard sea-view room which had all the expected facilities and were more than satisfied, the only thing which we might have requested would have been a kettle/tea/coffee etc however I gather that this is one of the benefits of upgrading to a superior room.
I can thoroughly recommend the hotel and would go back tomorrow.

Room Tip: The bedrooms in any of several external blocks are further away from the centrally situated entertai...

Just returned from a really enjoyable week at the Rhodos Palladium. Fabulous location, our rooms over looked the pool and beyond that to the sea. Extensive grounds that were immaculately kept with attractive planting. We were always able to get loungers at both the pool and on the beach without having to resort to bagging them at the crack of dawn. The food was good and pretty varied but be warned men have to wear long trousers to dinner (scruffy jeans and trainers are deemed acceptable but not smart long shorts and loafers!) The staff were invariably friendly and helpful and Anna on reception was very informative when we wanted to go to Rhodes Old Town for the day. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

We agree with the very good reviews of the hotel. The stuff are very friendly and helpfull, the food is very good , the hotel is very clean - rooms, public areas, pool and beach and quite. There is a bus station at the enterence of the hotel which makes going to the city very easy. A real relaxing place for a vacation.
But, and it is a huge but, the first hours at the hotel were very bad. We invited and payed for a standart sea view room and got a room on the ground floor ( -1 floor) with no sea and no view but a wall of a bulding 5 m. from the room blocking view and air (room 4009). We talked with the room manager that told us few very interesting facts. First, all the rooms of the hotel are called 'sea view' even if they have no view or mountain view, so there is no problem because we got what we booked (?). Second, If we would like a sea view, we should have booked the suites on the main bulding (wrong - even standart rooms in the other buldings have sea view). Third, we have to understand that the hotel is fully booked so we have to help them (I am a social worker but, sorry, not in my vacation!). When she saw that we really want what we payed and asked for, she said something about 'maybe tommorow', also not an option for us. All this conversation was while she did not even looked at us because she was very busy sending and getting messages on her mobile phone and her answers were robot like 'yes I understand...' 'yes I know....' which were meaningless and made us even more helpless and frustrated. Finally, after few hours we got another room. Still on the -1 floor (ground floor) but with pool view and a very little sea view. The next morning when we called to find out if there is a real sea view room, her answer was kind of rude like what we want after we got another room and ofcourse we did not get a nother room. It was really a very bad start and we lost few hours of our vacation and had to start a relaxing holiday with very bad feelings and bad attitude from the room manager. No apology was made for this start and attitude by this lady.
But after that, we really had good time and enjoyed the vacation very much. It is a place that we would like to go back if we would know that the start will be better and we will get what we booked and payed for with no need to arrgue for it.

Room Tip: not room 4009!

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel as well as for bringing your feedback to our attention.

We are truly sorry for any inconvenience caused at the beginning of your holiday. As in all hotels around the world certain rooms have a more advantageous view than others depending on their location in the building and can only apologize again for any inconvenience caused in this regard.
The vast majority of rooms and all suites found at the Rodos Palladium offer unobstructed views of the sea and would like to dismiss the second argument written. Without wishing to be unsympathetic, this appears as a genuine misunderstanding as we find it hard to believe that this came from our guest relations manager that has been with us since the hotel’s opening and knows the hotel remarkably well.

During the very peak of the season and when a hotel is absolutely full it is really hard to change guests’ rooms; rest assured that we do our very best to accommodate every guest’s wish and when an opportunity arises we do offer to change a room as we did in your case.

As far as our guest relations manager is concerned, we would like to note that she is a hard working and compassionate individual and would like to emphasize that we never experienced any issues associated with her attitude or behavior. We are truly sorry if you felt otherwise and would like to stress that this has been an unfortunate and isolated event.

On a positive note, we are very happy to read that despite your holiday started on the wrong foot you have still enjoyed your stay and acknowledged the compliments made by previous holiday makers; something that we are really grateful for.

We hope that should your future travel plans call for a trip to Rhodes that you might consider giving us another chance to show you why Rodos Palladium is considered to be amongst the top five star hotels in Rhodes.

Kindest Regards,
Rodos Palladium

Beautiful, first-class hotel, probably in the best location in Rhodes.
We stayed here during the last week of July and had a wonderful vacation. Everything about the hotel was excellent: the standard sea-view room which was comfortable and spacious and with a balcony, the private beach, the spotless and speckless swimming pool and other facilities, the buffet breakfast, and the helpful, always smiling staff.
If we come back to Rhodes we will definitely stay in this hotel and recommend it to all our relatives and friends.

I started writing a really detailed (and praising) review of this hotel but then I lost all the text... the only reason I'm writing this again is because I really feel this hotel deserves a review! Quite simply, there was nothing to fault! Local town and Rodos town just a short bus ride, boat ride (directly from the beach) or taxi ride away if you want to explore, but also a few cute little shops and a supermarket adjoined to the hotel. The hotel is beatifully textured - seating areas, bars (and a piano bar in the main lobby) all laid out in spaciousness and style, and when we there, I guess I would describe the clientele of guests as cosmopolitan with all ranges of holiday goers, from Mum's and daughters to families of all ages, couples and friends enjoy their holiday in this resort. Mum and I love dressing up for dinner, and everybody else did too which was nice, but it's so relaxing and laid back and the food was delicious and SO much wonderful variety. Never any rush for sunbeds by the pool or beach - and the sea was beautiful, clear and warm. Ahhh I could go on and on, but it's probably best if you make a visit yourself! It was brilliant - the room, the service, cleanliness, entertainment etc etc etc!!!!!

Stunning hotel,very clean, well run with lovely staff. The beach was sand and pebble and we found it difficult getting into the sea because of all the stones, but purchased swim shoes from the hotel supermarket for 6 euros and that solved the problem. Room was perfect,very clean, great air conditioning, good shower over the bath. There was water and a bottle of wine on our arrival, which was a nice touch.The pool was beautiful, again a lovely clean area with loads of sun loungers, no need to take towels as these were provided free of charge both for the pool and the beach.The drinks at the hotel were a bit expensive, beer 4.50 euros, soft drinks around 3.50 euros, cocktails 8 euros. If you turned left out of the hotel,about 20 mins walk there was a small shopping mall with a couple of bars, a further 10 mins. on there was a larger one with a few more bars, drinks were half hotel prices.It was a nice easy walk, along a well lit road. Meals were buffet style with plenty of choice. I must give a mention to Maria and Georgia, waitresses in the restaurant, lovely. lovely ladies, very friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble for them.I would just like to add that I downloaded info about this hotel from the travel republic website which I use regularly. the room info. is slightly inaccurate. There was no seperate shower and bath,bidet or bathrobes, although this didn`t matter to us. Sea ferry trip to Lindos 49 euros return only runs Wednesday and Sunday, Rhodes town 11 euros return daily,and there was a full day to turkey (can`t remember how much ). All in all, a fabulous holiday and would love to return one day soon

Dear Valued Guest,

We highly appreciate the time taken to review our hotel on Tripadvisor and would like to warmly thank you for the wonderful comments made.

It is truly pleasing to read that you had a fabulous time with us and are delighted to hear that you would love to return at the Rodos Palladium soon.

Thank you also for praising most aspects of our hotel, namely the cleanliness, accommodation standards, service and cuisine offered.

As far as drink prices are concerned, we are sorry to read that those were perceived as slightly expensive however we would like to note that our pricing is in line with what other five star hotels charge in the island. In any case, we would like to thank you for bringing this issue to our attention and assure you that the management has been informed accordingly.

We will also contact your booking agent, investigate and rectify any inaccuracies mentioned in the room description; we are sure that those are down to an unfortunate loading error.

Once again thank you for your great review and comments and very much hope to have the pleasure to welcome you back in our resort in the not so distant future.

Warm Regards,
Rodos Palladium
